Acrylic Rod

Emco Plastics offers a wide selection of cast and extruded acrylic rod. Cast Acrylic Rods are available in diameters ranging from 1/4″ to 12″ for clear and 1/2″ to 3″ in colors. Tight tolerances and highly polished, these rods are available in standard lengths or cut to size. Cast acrylic rods are used in many applications in place of extruded or molded acrylic because of its better machining properties, greater clarity, better resistance to heat distortion, and higher tensile strength. Cast acrylic rod meets ASTM D5436, certified for food contact FDA CFR 21 177.1010 UL approved 94HB.

Extruded Rods are available in diameters ranging from 1/16″ to 7.874″. Extruded acrylic rods are used for decorative use or for manufacturing in production of high quality clear acrylic products. It will not warp, crack, craze, or corrode when subjected to prolonged exposure outdoors. It meets FDA standards and is UV stabilized. It has a forming temp of 350° F. Max continuous temp of 180°F.

Acrylic Tube

Cast Acrylic Tubes are available with outside diameters ranging from 1.250″ to 96″. Wall thicknesses ranging from 1.250″ O.D. to 1.875 O.D. with .125, .187, or .250 wall. 2″ to 27.625″ diameter with .125, .187, .250, .375, or .500 wall. 32.5″ to 96″ diameter with .250, .375, .500, .750, 1.00 wall. Cast acrylic tubes weigh half as much as glass and have greater impact resistance than glass. These tubes meet ASTM 5436, certified FDA CFR 21 177.1010, UL approved 94 HB.

Extruded Acrylic Tubes are available with outside diameters ranging from 1/4″ to 14″ and inside diameters ranging from 1/8″ to 13 3/4″. These economical acrylic tubes are excellent for use in POP Displays and other decorative uses. Extruded acrylic tubes can be used in a number of applications such as displays, aquarium tanks, arts & crafts, and much much more. Extruded tubing is inexpensive and easy to work with but it cannot be machined. If you need exact tolerances, cast acrylic tube is the better option.
